When Carmen (our dear sweet mermaid of Writing From Life) told me that she wanted to send me a little treat to celebrate my 40th birthday I never would have guessed that I would be receiving such wonderful surprise! I can't resist ... I just HAVE to share:

Make a wish?!? My wishes have been MORE than granted!!

I adore this "Discover" collage that she made & have it sitting right next to me here at the computer desk. I love to surround my space with things that inspire me ... this inspires me.

And check out this tasty treat! I have been wearing this bracelet since I received it (well, I did take it off to snap this photo & I do take it off at night before I go to sleep ... but that's it!).

... but WAIT! There is one more little treasure:

Isn't it the BEST?!? Carmen made me this most precious mermaid in the prettiest pinks and with glorious butterfly wings ... she's dreamy and most special to me ... I am truly honored to have one of Carmen's mermaids and will treasure her forever and for always.

My heart is full of love & thanks.

I am so happy you are happy!
it was my pleasure! And you make me so incredibly happy and PROUD knowing that you are wearing them, too.
I smiled yesterday when I read this post, and felt honored you gave this space in your world of me-me-me, LOL.
The collage was alot of fun (I was nervous) and yes I wanted something making little sounds and make you smile.
Yes, with the Pendant and bracelet, I am more confident with them and I am so glad you see them with love because yes they were handmade and heartfelt ;-)
Thank YOU!!!
And also, for making my day yesterday and Today, too!
